There is a long tradition of further research in experimental toxicology in Ukraine. This has been exemplified by the fact that there are active societies of toxicology in many regions of Ukraine, organising scientific meetings and conferences and publishing a lot of publications. Ukrainian toxicologists, which work in field of preventive toxicology and chemical toxicology, regular took part in most important scientific meetings organised during recent years:
EUROTOX`95. Prague, Czech Republic.
EUROTOX`96. Alicante, Spaine.
EUROTOX`97. Aarhus, Denmark.
IUTOX Training Course on Basic Toxicology, Budapest, Hungary, 1997.

On the 19-th May, 1999 in the premises and by the head of Professor Mykola Prodanchuk the Ukrainian Toxicology Society was founded. Creation of Ukrainian Toxicology Society was the note of remember of famous Ukrainian Toxicologist, professor Yriy Kagan whose work and personality have contributed so much to the national science. Today Ukrainian Toxicology Society have registration in Ukrainian Ministry of Justice (Certificate #1267, dated 25th December, 1999).
The aim of the Society is to unite specialists of various fields of toxicological research, to promote the education and training, to organise national and international conferences, to create scientific contact between Ukrainian Toxicologists and their colleagues abroad.
